Data consisting of measurements of the length in inches and weight in pounds of 977,694 fish representing 67 species from the rivers and river impoundments in or bordering Alabama were utilized in this study. These fish were collected over the years 1949 to 1962 from 152 sample areas, varying in size from 0.25 to 3.0 acres. One-hundred fifty areas were sampled by application of rotenone. Treatment of data consisted of computing the average empirical weight, the maximum weight, the minimum weight, a condition index, the number of individuals, and 2 calculated weights for each inch-group for each species. The computations were made with the IBM 1620 Data Processing System using computer program developed by the author. The results of these computations were compiled into length-weight tables for each species.
